We stopped here for a bit of lunch by the sea after a long walk in the stunning, surrounding area....and it was a great surprise. Bacon and/or Halloumi rolls, coffee or soft drinks, cakes etc. A great place to stop, we'll be back.

We popped down to Studland Bay for the day and found Joe's Cafe, this was a welcome find as we fancied a coffee. A lovely setting looking out over the beach and out to sea and very relaxing. Will definitely visit again.
